1957

1957 was a vintage year for Detroit. The 1957 Ford and 1957 Chevy are just as popular today as they were over 50 years ago.

For 1957, Fords were new from the ground up and the were longer, lower and wider. Styling was simple with a clean wide grille and great looking side molding and prominent tailfins. The 57 Ford line was broad with 20 different body styles for the first time.

The 1957 Ford series consisted of the Custom, Custom 300, Fairlane, Fairlane 500 and Station Wagons. The Customs had a 116 inch wheelbase and all others had a wheelbase of 118 inches. Ford offered three V-8's of 190, 212 and 245 horsepower along with a 144 horsepower 6 cylinder.

The Skyliner returned in 1957, but on a very different Ford. The Skyliner was the first retractable hardtop that was an addition to the new Fairlane 500 series. Advertising claims told the story - "The exciting New Ford Skyliner... World's Only Hide-Away Hardtop".
